Drew Brees announced on Sunday night that he and his wife, Brittany, are expecting their third son. The Saints quarterback announced the news on Twitter; thankfully Saints Rapid Reporter Larry Holder is super diligent and we didn't miss it.
The babies Brees are oddly famous; Drew's first son, Baylen (above), became a mini-celebrity when the quarterback held him and his gigantic earphones in the aftermath of the Saints Super Bowl victory a few years ago. Their second son, Bowen, got his name via a Twitter contest to find interesting B-related names. (We're hoping the new one will be "Brinson Brees," because Brinson is the best B, obviously.)
Naturally, the latest baby news had a twist as well.
"Found out the sex of the baby by Brittany baking cupcakes today," Brees tweeted Sunday. "Bit into the center, all BLUE. Boy #3 is on the way!"
Color-coded cupcakes are absolutely the best way to find out what kind of baby you're having; not only is it a clever method of delivering the news, but it's delicious too.
More interestingly, though, is what Holder points out in his Rapid Report: Brees is the second notable Saints quarterback to produce a trio of baby boys. The last one to do so? Archie Manning.
His sons -- Peyton, Eli and Cooper -- are decent at football and relatively famous. There's certainly no guarantee that Baylen, Bowen and Currently Nameless Baby Boy will be good at football, but there's certainly a precedent set.
Either way, congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Brees on their latest piece of great parenting news.
